    Growing Tips for Black Beauty Eggplants from Seed


    Sowing Seeds

    Sow Black Beauty eggplant seeds 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep, about 8 to 10 weeks before transplanting outside (or 4 to 8 weeks before your average last frost date). Keep seedlings under lights or a sunny south-facing window.



    Transplant after the last frost, when nighttime temperatures stay above 50°F (10°C). Plant in rich, well-draining soil or potting mix.


    Warm Weather Crop

    Treat Black Beauty eggplants like tomatoes and peppers. They are warm weather crops. Suitable for container growing (use a 5-gallon container minimum).



    Harvest when the eggplants are mature but still tender. Picking the central spear (main head) encourages side shoots to develop. Regularly pick side shoots to extend the harvest.
